Grungy Monday 7!



This week's challenge is distress ink colorblocking! Stamps used are from I Brake For Stamps :)



The faces are from the Stampinback line and the text is from the Time To Stamp line.



Added a little semi-circle of Gesso, to connect it all together and add to the grunginess :)

Really nice - I like how you made the technique more subtle, so it doesn't scream "plaid!"
Thanks for sharing.
